We took a short break to the sun. Chose the Melia as it is one of the best hotels in Torremolinos and very conveniently located for both the beach and the many restaurants in the area.
As previous contributors have said, the pool is rather small and the sun drops behind the hotel at about 3pm so if you want to sit out all day in the sun, you would probably be better going over to the beach - sun beds €4.50 for the day. The small pool is really the only negative point. The hotel does provides pool/beach towels - very important for those all important cabin baggage only trips.
Breakfast is good. Plenty of choice of both hot and cold options, and is served until 11 am allowing for a good lie-in.
We didn't dine at either the buffet or the Al la carte restaurant as there are some good options available near the hotel. I can particularly recommend El Sabor and the El Gato lounge for good quality food and wine, with first class service.
